Railways to constitute Mobility Directorate, Non-Fare Revenue Directorate
13 May 2016 Current Affairs: The Union Railways Ministry has decided to constitute two Directorates viz. Mobility Directorate (MD) and Non-Fare Revenue Directorate (NFRD). They will be established for creation of cross functional directorates to focus on different areas in line with the Railway Minister’s budget speech.

Mobility Directorate : It will be constituted to focus on areas like speed enhancement. It will handle work such as identification and prioritization of train corridors for raising speed and identification of path for timetabled freight trains.

Non-Fare Revenue Directorate : It will be constituted to focus on areas for enhancing revenues by 10% to 20% from Non-Tariff sources. Among other things, it will handle advertisement at stations, commercial exploitation of vacant land, and advertisements on coaches.

These new Directorates would work directly under the supervision of Chairman of the Railway Board.
